Lara Allen is a literary agent with The Lotts Agency. She says: “I’m currently looking for upmarket commercial fiction across all genres. The common thread is a strong, interesting voice and an atmospheric sense of place. I appreciate a good sense of adventure and wit in a story–extra points if it has a strong female protagonist—but I’m not above an emotional pull if the story warrants it. I’m more open to fantasy if it’s YA than adult, and I’m not looking for straightforward romance.
On the YA and middle grade side, the style of writing—a strong, sure plot, a sense of adventure, and a memorable protagonist with a sure voice—is the same. I’m not currently looking for nonfiction on the YA side. I am open to graphic novels, however.
For nonfiction, I like unusual histories (like COD) and pop culture narratives, including humor, though not celebrity bios or memoirs. I don’t represent business, lifestyle, self-help or cookbooks.”
